Frank Martinez, Jr., resident of Galveston for over 50 years, died Sunday, June 23, 2013 at UTMB Hospital, at age 81. He was born on September 20, 1931, in San Antonio, TX, where he grew up. He married Mary Sanchez in 1953.

After serving in the Air Force in Alaska during the Korean War, he pursued an engineering degree at the University of Texas. He also worked at the Texas Highway Department. He then came to Galveston, where he worked and retired from the Corps of Engineers. Working as a draftsman, surveyor, proprietor of a liquor store, bookkeeper, and tax preparer, he wore many hats during and after his long career with the government.

Frank was an avid member of the St. Peter's Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. He was also an expert coin and stamp collector. His children fondly remember the many times he took them to Astro's baseball game and went fishing. He is also remembered as a great deer hunter. Every one knew that he was a loyal Longhorn football fan. He was generous to all and a good provider to his family.

Frank is survived by two children: Frank Martinez III, and his wife, Joanna and Cynthia Marcy and her husband, Larry . He is survived by four grandchildren: Eric, Sara, Thomas, Andy.
